Strategy for Hardware Upgrade

1. Types of Connections

The first question that you’ll need to focus on is the type of connection your system supports, including the monitor and video output. Sometimes, a video card or motherboard specifications might deny your monitor selection, simply by stating or showing an error related to unsupported computer parts. The two most common connection types for monitors are:

• DVI connectors: These are used as a digital output for PC monitors, and it supports all the modern video cards including DVI video cards and HDMI cards.

• VGA connectors: VGA connectors are generally paired up with an older PC that might not even install a video card or support DVI standards.

2. Screen Size

There is no standard phenomenon behind selecting an ideal screen size as it entirely depends on the user’s preference and personal choice. Cost of the PC monitor also plays a vital role in deciding the screen size.

Following are some of the guidelines you should check before buying a monitor:

• Larger monitors are better

Compatible Toners

One of the benefits of using compatible toners that you may not have known is that they are often made up of recycled parts, making them environmentally friendly solutions. These days recycling, the environment and finding ways to reduce your carbon footprint is important, using one of these cartridges can help you get one step closer to your goal and enjoy peace of mind that you make an environmentally friendly decision today.

The next benefit which you probably are aware of, but have always pushed to the back of your mind when buying compatible toner is the cost. Compatible cartridges are considerably cheaper than their original counterparts and you may wonder why this is. Printer manufacturers want you to believe that their cartridges are worth the money they charge, when it fact they are on a par with the compatibles available on the market today.

You will find that compatible toners are high quality, unlike years ago where they had a bad name. Companies are focusing on providing clients with good quality cartridges that they

Tricks Fix Problems in Printer

Check the cables (wired printers)

Verify that the printer link is legitimately associated from the printer to your PC.

Check the remote connection (remote printers)

• Make beyond any doubt the printer’s remote alternative is turned on and accessible. Numerous printers have a catch that shows a blue remote symbol when remote is accessible. To realize where this catch is found on your printer and to discover directions about how to turn it on, see the manual that accompanied the printer.

• Run the printer’s remote integration test. Numerous printers have a menu alternative to test the printer’s remote integration. Perused the guidelines that accompanied the printer or check the printer maker’s site for directions about how to do this.

• If you’re utilizing Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1, take after the ventures in Why isn’t Windows discovering my Bluetooth or different remote gadget? In the event that the issue continues after you take after those ventures, there may be some kind of problem with your PC’s system connector.

Utilize a troubleshooter

Cooling Fan Covers

Firstly, it is important to note that these fan covers can prevent damage to the fan itself. In an area that is unattended – or on the contrary is very busy – it is possible for fans to get damaged if they are left without any kind of protection. This can include certain items accidentally striking the fan when it is or is not operational.

If a fan were to become damaged, this could have negative consequences for the equipment that it is cooling and could result in costly replacements. Although fans are often made from sturdy materials, this is not always sufficient to mean that they will not break or become damaged to the point of less efficiency.

It is also important to note that the lack of a cover for your cooling fans for your electronics cabinet or other equipment can mean that damage is also more likely to occur to the electronics themselves. Although a fan can provide sufficient protection to a certain extent – especially if the fan is in operation – its efficiency as a barrier to the electronics is doubled by a fan cover.

Many fan covers take the

Benefits Hard Drive Shredding

• Degaussing-this is the process of eliminating or decreasing a remnant magnetic field such as the hard disk drive of your computer and wipes the media from it so it can be safely and securely disposed..
• Physical disk destruction-this is where you render the platters severely fragmented and the disk inoperable.

If you are concerned about any sensitive data being left on your hard drive when you recycle it then the physical destruction of the disk is the best method of protection. It is also referred to as hard drive shredding and is a secure way of disposal. By doing this you are getting rid of confidential data by overwriting the deleted files. You want to make sure that the data that you have erased from your hard disk cannot be recovered anymore by anyone once you have deleted it.

When deciding to do hard drive shredding you need to be careful about the kind of software you use to complete this task. If you chose file shredding it will let you choose the file that you want removed and will only remove that particular file but nothing has been permanently removed and the file

Information od CD Duplication

CD Duplication is the process of producing a copy of a CD master disc by “burning” audio or data information onto a blank CD Recordable disc (CD-R) using a laser. Although digital audio formats have become increasingly popular over the last decade the CD still holds more than half of the market share with regards to the number of audio albums sold.

Businesses offering a CD duplication service use duplication towers to produce many copies from a master CD. These duplication towers range in size from a unit holding 3 optical drives, similar to the unit found in a desktop PC, to much larger towers holding 4 or even 5 banks of 10 drives. Larger scale businesses that regularly carry out duplication for batches of 1000 or more CDs will have a suite containing many of these larger duplication towers connected in a daisy chain fashion using a firewire or high speed USB connection. Whatever the size of the suite, all of the drives will be connected to a central controlling master drive. The CD master containing the information to be copied onto all of the blank CDRs is placed into this master drive.

Obviously, when

Computer Case Cooling

The first tip you should take into consideration when it comes to computer case cooling is to ensure you buy a fan filter assembly that is bigger than required. Ideally buying a larger fan and allowing it to run at a slower speed will provide you with the same ventilation as a smaller fan running at optimum speed. The main benefit to choosing a larger fan over a smaller fan to ventilate the same area is it will be considerably quieter.

Always use a fan filter. Taking advantage of a fan filter assembly for your computer case can save you headaches in the long run. In addition to reducing the risk of a child in the home injuring themselves by sticking a finger in the fast moving fan, the fan filter also reduces any dust and dirt getting inside the computer. Computer components work best when they are clean and cool, which is what these products provide, ensuring you always have a great performing machine you can rely on day and night.

It is imperative when you install your fan filter assembly that you mount it correctly. Even if you think you know what you are

Clean Printer Rollers

Internal Pickup Rollers – For Laser Printers Only

Step 1

Turn off your printer and unplug all the cables. Uncover the printer’s front door and gently pull the printer’s toner cartridge towards yourself to detach it from the printer.

Step 2

Try to locate the printer’s internal pickup rollers. Rollers are either black or gray in color and are made up of rubber. Slowly lift the rollers in the upward direction towards the front of the printer. Now, pull out the rollers and place it on a smooth and clean surface like workbench or desk.

Step 3

Pour 1 tablespoon of water or isopropyl alcohol onto a lint-free cloth and begin the cleansing task. Fold the clean-up cloth in half and repeat the process until the rollers are free from dust and debris.

Step 4

Clean the rollers with a dry clean-up cloth to eliminate remaining dust or debris particles. Let the rollers dry completely before placing the pickup rollers back into their place. Now, properly reinstall the toner cartridge and close the printer’s front door.

Replacing Toner Cartridge Chip

What Happens When the Toner Cartridge Chip is Misread?

Cartridges could still have enough toner in them for printing if we refill them, and if the chip isn’t reset or replaced, warning signs continue to appear. The printer may refuse to print a page. This is because the computer is informed by the toner chip, and does not recognize that there is fresh toner in the cartridge. We can remedy this problem by replacing the used chip as this resets the counter.

Refilling and Reuse of the Toner Cartridge

The cost of replacing original printer cartridges is high and there’s a cost saving for us when a cartridge is refilled. The negative impact on our environment is also reduced when a toner cartridge is reused. Cartridges are made up of delicate parts including base metals and plastics. These represent costs to our environment in manufacturing and when a cartridge is thrown away instead of being recycled.

Reducing the Negative Impact on our Environment

Replacing the chip is of great advantage to us because it allows the refilling and reuse of printer cartridges without annoying printer messages popping up on the desktop. A second

Electronic Recycling

There will be a cleaner environment. Most electronic waste is being dumped or sent to landfills, which are becoming scarcer. Doing this occupies a lot of space and spreads harmful toxins by degrading the ground water. This makes a dangerous situation for humans, animals, and plant life. When you recycle your electronics, it saves space in your landfills and helps to prevent other areas of the land from becoming dumping grounds. Recycling will also prevent the toxins from causing environmental pollution.

There are also the health benefits of electronic recycling. Electronic products are manufactured from different types of gases and plastics along with harmful elements like lead. When people and businesses just dump their electronics these chemicals are released into the air and the earth. These chemicals not only pose a threat to the health of the people who dump the electronics but also to others who live near the dumping grounds and landfill.

Many of the electronics, especially computer hardware, has many things that can be re-utilized and some of them do not require any processing. Some big companies even have their own recycling facilities where all of the reusable material is put to good

Great PC for Gaming

System Case

You can get a desktop PCs in various sizes and shapes. Computers with a bigger case allow you to get several larger graphics, more hard drives, and sophisticated cooling arrangements. The most important part is the design of the motherboard, which gives numerous features. The limitation of such large cases is the fact that they occupy a lot of space and can dominate rooms of small sizes.

The number of computers having smaller Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards is increasing gradually. Their size is quite manageable. However, these are not adequate for users who like to double these up for graphic cards, or fit a larger quantity of internal parts, though they remain almost as powerful as their bigger cousins.

Graphic Cards

Of the internal components contained in computer’s case, the most significant for games is the graphic card. The biggest graphic cards are unlikely to get fitted into all cases. But generally, you should choose the most powerful card that your budget allows, as this component plays the most significant role in the way games perform.

There continues to be a strong competition with regard to price, the selection of graphic

Wireless Barcode Scanners

Bluetooth Barcode Scanner – A bluetooth scanner is wireless again, but this time, it transmits scanned data back to a receiving cradle via bluetooth. The cradle is usually plugged into a host or P.C. Bluetooth scanners can also be paired with a laptops, tablets or smart phones.

Bluetooth scanners do vary in robustness, size and features. Some bluetooth barcode scanners can also store scanned data as well, giving it the functionality of a memory scanner as well.

APPLICATIONS – Point of sale, Inventory management, event management. Applications where you need mobility and not restricted by the length of cable that comes with a tethered scanner.

PDA Barcode Scanners (Batch) – A batch PDA Scanner is also wireless. However they have much more functionality than just a wireless barcode scanner. As mentioned earlier, wireless scanners can only capture the barcode #. Where a PDA scanner can capture the barcode # plus the quantity plus location ID # and much more.

A PDA barcode scanner that is batch, can only store the data within its memory. After the scanning is completed, you upload it back into excel, notepad or send back to an application via a

About Print Management Solutions

Home printer just won’t cut it. It is not manufactured to handle high volumes of print runs. Keep in mind that a student or person who uses a printer at home only uses it occasionally. So to them, it is sufficient and appears to last long. For you that run a business such a printer won’t last long because it cannot cope with printing everyday throughout the year. It probably can’t hold a lot of paper anyway.

For a business, it is necessary to find a printer that can handle high print volumes and that is durable. Also, it is ideal to select a printer that has multi-functionality. A printer that can print, copy, scan and, possibly, fax is very useful to a business. We live in a modern age so a fax is probably not necessary but if you tend to receive and send documents daily, you will require a document scanner. You need to be able to quickly scan a document to your laptop so that you can email it. The same is applicable in the opposite sense, when you receive a document, you should be able to easily send it to print. While we’re

Renew Old Computer

Steroids for CPU

While some computers don’t have the option to upgrade their processor unit and graphics card, you can always work around tweaking its processor.

Overclock it.

If you are adventurous enough, you can try overclocking your processor. It’s one of the best way to squeeze out more performance without breaking the bank.

Monthly Clean Up

Before you jump to conclusion, you may want to troubleshoot your computer and make sure the slowness is not caused by malware – viruses, worms, trojan horses spyware or adware.

Do a full computer scan with your antivirus software like AVG, Symantec or McAfee. Also, you can clean up temporary files, update windows, and defrag your hard disk.

If all else fails, don’t despair, you can try to reinstall your operating system from scratch.

Speed up Your Applications

Even when it sounds weird to be true, the truth is that some good programs are not optimized to run at their peak performance.

For example, if your web browser loads slowly, it could be due to its history size, installed extensions, or plugins.

Out of MFP

• Maximize Faxing – Fax files directly to desktops on your network to improve productivity and enhance your ability to collaborate with colleagues on office projects. Desktop faxing also eliminates the need to produce a paper copy of a file or document just to run it through the fax machine to send it to someone outside your office. This saves valuable time and reduces paper waste.

• App it Up – Some MFPs now come equipped with cloud connectivity and app capabilities, allowing you to do a variety of things. Connect to your Google account or upload a file to your customer relationship management system by using simple, user-friendly apps at the MFP.

• Incorporate Vertical-specific Solutions – Many MFPs allow users to customize and enhance their devices for their specific industry. Solutions for education, healthcare, legal, government offices, and many more are available, helping to enhance security safeguards while controlling costs. For example, advanced education software allows teachers to print bubble sheet tests on demand and grade the exams in minutes. And highly secure healthcare software allows doctors to print prescriptions with anti-copy and anti-counterfeit features.

Few businesses have taken the necessary steps to

USB Type 3 Cable

It is much faster

The latest USB type C cable has the ability to operate at a very fast rate and therefore charge up external devices like smart phones or e-readers quickly. The fastest speed rates are achieved when the USB-C and USB 3.1 sockets are able to work in combination. A major reason for this is the ability to push up to 100W of power compared to the earlier standards that were limited to about 10W. A further benefit of the improved speed is the ability to complete file transfers from an external hard drive more quickly.

Greater versatility

The USB type C cable is extremely versatile and practical in many different situations. There is no need to use different plug and cable sizes for device like the laptop, smart phone or printer. Plus, it has the ability to take on several roles and complete multiple jobs at once. For instance, it has the ability to transfer data and charge a device at the same time. Other practical uses include the ability to hook up a laptop to an external screen.

A great plus of this connector having multiple functions is less need

All about Routers and Ports

Routers are another important part of technology that has developed well. They are in every electronic store you can imagine. What an advantage it is that we can have a device that organizes and protects our internet use. When your computer browsing different websites the router will send traffic to and from where it’s needed. At the same time using encryption to protect your information from hackers.

There are many scary moments of where someone personal information was stolen. But the bringing of WEP and other protection methods of internet use has been a great way and advantage to the PC user. Being on a personal home PC should be a safe experience.

There are some who have enough experience and know how and when to loom for computer security attacks. Having a computer ramped with hackers and spyware can be very uncomfortable. That’s why routers, antivirus software, and other security measures are good.

One great security we have that comes with routers is the ability to have port selection. Every router has the ability to have certain ports that can be open and closed. Make the ports that you use for friend gaming closed

Need Fiber Optic Networks

A fiber termination kit is very handy for fiber optic termination as well as for splicing and testing purposes. These kits are essential parts of any fiber optic expert since it helps make their job much easier.

You want to make sure that you get a kit with all the right instruments. You will be needing electrical tape, kelvar scissors, a set of screwdrivers, tweezers and pliers. That’s not all, you might also need safety glasses since you do not want to damage your eyes It is always better to come well prepared in advance to prevent any accidents.

Another handy thing that comes in a good fiber termination kits is a black marker for creating precise marks, this prevents mistakes. Also, an emergency lamp is also something to keep by your side.

There are a few more tools that come in such a kit but we just mentioned the main ones. All of these tools come in a hard plastic tool case that is easy to carry around and durable. This way, you will not worry about dropping it during work.

A fiber optic tester

In order to test fiber optic networks,

Industrial Touch Panel

• Easy interface – With the absence of buttons and switches, there is a larger area for interface design. When setting up the programs or the software for the panel, people have a wider space and thus allowing people to use and view several widgets on a single screen.

• Fast sensing abilities – When a person uses the keyboard or the mouse to use the varied functions of the computer, it takes time for the computer to receive the command and act upon it. While a touch panel receives the commands faster with just a single touch.

• Resistant to natural conditions – Most industrial panels are exposed to the public where there are times people put in higher physical effort to operate the device or let the panel get exposed to weather conditions; it is at these times that the panels are resistive to such external changes. They are covered with necessary protection to make it resistant to external force.

• Cost effective – With most computer technologies opting for touch panels, it has become cheaper to manufacture them as compared to computers with keyboards and other components. It is cheap to purchase,

Use Mac for Business

That said there are a lot of times when Apple Mac computers are better for business. Any time you have graphic design involved for example. Mac computers dominate this industry with their large high resolution screens and amazing graphic software. Almost every web design, printing or graphic design company I’ve been in use Mac computers exclusively.

A Mac computer is also a good choice for a small one or two person office simply because they are so versatile out of the box. If you’re a small business owner without many staff the answer to “Should I use a Mac for my business?” might be a solid yes. You’ll be wearing many hats in this case including designing your own logos and marketing materials or maybe even creating your own website all of which Mac computers are very good at.

With the release of Microsoft Office for Mac, you can still use Outlook, Word, Excel etc which makes it easier for those making the switch. There is certainly a learning curve involved, however, as the operating systems are quite different but the basic concepts like files, folders, copy, cut, paste, and the like are the same.
